J.K. Rowling Hides Her Books

Well in more pointless Harry Potter news, J.K. Rowling is doing a book that links into the Harry Potter mythos (I shudder with shame to even dignify it with that term but I’m too lazy to find the appropriately condescending one) called Beedle the Bard, but only creating seven copies, six to hand out to her friends and one to auction off for sick children.

Now it’s nice that J.K. Rowling is going all Thomas Kinkade on this (as least she’s not marking her territory at parties one hopes) and it’s for a “good cause” and all. As if printing 20 million copies of the bloody thing and selling them to everyone wouldn’t have earned far more money. I suppose the children will have to comfort themselves with reading either the scanned in PDF versions online or the fake invented Chinese copies of it.

Come to think of it, with only seven people in possession of Beedle the Bard, how will anyone be able to tell real from fake?
